Transit Police arrest 2 for attempting to beak into MV's

Colin McCuen
On September 21, 2014 at approximately 8:30pm Transit Police officers were on patrol at the MBTA's Braintree parking garage. While there they observed two individuals, later identified as Colin McCuen, 18, of Quincy and a 17 year old male juvenile from South Weymouth, attempting to gain entry into several parked motor vehicles. McCuen and the juvenile were also in possession of backpacks. After unsuccessful attempts to enter the motor vehicles officers approached the duo. Both were found to be in possession of several items stolen from previous motor vehicle break-ins which occurred at the Braintree MBTA garage as well as Burglarious instruments.

Both McCuen and the male juvenile were placed into custody for Attempted B&E of a Motor Vehicle, Possession of Burglarious Instruments and Receiving Stolen Property and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. During the booking process it was discovered there were two warrants in existence for the 17 year old male juvenile issued from Norfolk County Juvenile Court for Receiving Stolen Property and Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle.
